Personal Devotions

Forward Day by Day

A ministry of The Episcopal Church, Forward Movement has been inspiring disciples and empowering evangelists around the globe since 1935 through offerings that encourage spiritual growth in individuals and congregations.

Best known for Forward Day by Day, a daily devotion providing meditations on scripture readings, Forward Movement offers books and ebooks for small groups, individual study and prayer, Christian formation courses, leadership events, Spanish and bilingual resources, pamphlets, downloadable resources, a daily podcast, apps for your smartphones or tablets, and online engagement opportunities.

Christ’s Church has a bulk standing order subscription to Forward Day by Day, which allows us to make free copies available in the narthex (vestibule) of the church for anyone interested (while supplies last).

Advent and Lenten Devotions

For personal devotions in preparation for the high holidays of Christmas and Easter, Christ’s Church publishes seasonal booklets of scriptural meditations, one for Advent and another for Lent. The meditations are written by members of our community, each of whom volunteers to share the thoughts and feelings evoked by her or his reading of an assigned passage of scripture.
